A woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center this morning after being hit by a car at the intersection of 15th Avenue East and East Harrison Street.

Medics said the woman, who appeared to be in her 60s, was alert and conscious after being partially run over by the compact car. They described her injuries as serious, but not life-threatening.

Seattle police sent a drug-recognition expert to the scene to evaluate the driver.  Police say it wasn’t immediately clear whether the pedestian had been in a crosswalk.
